Two of my obsessions led to the creation of these DIY Starbucks Lid Gift Tags. The first is that I am a hoarder of glass – particularly Starbucks Frappuccino jars. I just can’t throw glass away! I know that as soon as I do I will regret it & wish I had kept it for some project. So far my glass hoarding problem hasn’t grown too out of control, although luckily I know that if it does I have a husband who will bring me to my senses. My second obsession is pretty normal – & almost everyone else is obsessed too – & of course that obsession is with chalkboard paint!
Every time I pull out the chalkboard paint for just one project I have so much fun that I have to find something else to paint too! – Which is how this project came to be! – I had just finished painting my Chalkboard Puzzle Piece Gift Tags when I noticed a pile of Starbucks lids piling up. I immediately decided to put paint to it & after remembering how popular the Chalkboard Mason Jar Lid Ornaments were & how easy it was to hammer a hole into them I decided to repeat the idea – but with a twist!
That means that you can use your DIY Starbucks Lid Gift Tags as Christmas ornaments & gift tags this holiday season!
What you’ll need:
Starbucks Frappuccino Lids
Chalkboard Paint & Brush
Old Magazines or Newspapers
Hammer & Small Nail
String, Ribbon, Baker’s Twine
Chalk or Chalk Ink
First, clean & dry your Starbucks lids.
Then hammer a hole into the Starbucks lids. I found that it was easiest to do this from the inside out as seen above.
Once you have created a large enough hole, flip the lid over & apply one coat of chalkboard paint. Let dry according to the packaging instructions & then paint on a second coat.
*Note: You might want to stick a toothpick or nail through the hole after every application of paint, while it is still wet, to keep the paint from clogging the hole.
Once dry attach a loop of string & write or draw on your gift tags with chalk or chalk ink. Then all you have to do is hang your DIY Starbucks Lid Gift Tags on your tree or on some Christmas presents!
